2003 Chevrolet Impala

Hey everyone. I've been looking for a nice set of wheels for a while now. Well I found some on craigslist and picked them up the other day. They are 17" chrome wheels from an 04+ Grand Prix GTP with kumho ecsta tires with about 6/32 tread. I got them from a dealership in northwestern Massachussets. They were asking $200 but they accepted my offer of $150. I think I got a pretty good deal. When I had originally emailed the seller he said the tires were 235/50/17, when I met him to pick them up I found out they were actually 225/50/17, so the tires are a little short.

The plastic center cap said Pontiac on them. I'm in the process of painting them black with the plastic lug covers from my old hubcaps.

What do you guys think?

They will look better with more proper sized tires on. Otherwise not to bad... as it stands though you can tell the tires are a bit small for the Impala.

Silenced not a big fan of those.. would rather take the torque stars or even the honeycomb ones.. but not bad for the price to use for snow tires..

Not bad. I'd see about getting some caps for those lug nuts though.

I was thinking the same thing, but I didn't want to be the a**hole to ask. Laughing

Thanks for all the responses. I painted the plastic center cap that said Pontiac on it. I also painted the lug caps from my old wheel covers.

The caps look much better than the exposed lugs. As far as the directional thing goes, the wheels look like they 'point' in different directions on each side of the car.

If someone else can't come up with a better articulated statement before I get home from the lab, I'll upload your pics to Photobucket and draw on them to show you what I mean.
